Tandala is a hidden gem. I stayed two nights in July 2012 during a safari at Ruaha National Park and I will be going back in only a couple weeks. Ruaha is my favorite park in Tanzania and the camp site of Tandala is safe, but close enough to still be thrilling. Elephants roam the camp grounds and enjoy the waterhole right beside the open dining area, and we were woken up by the Masai warriors at 4am to come down and see the pack of 4 lions that were roaming the area. The food was delicious, showers are hot, the price is right, and the owners of the camp are enjoyable and inviting. Five stars.
